I opened FB today and I saw one of my friend who posted a news which reads like this –
“8 Months Baby stabbed 90 times with scissors by his Chinese mother after he bit her as she was breastfeeding him“
It was a painful story, and the pictures were so gruesome and I knew I couldn’t take it, and its not an one-off story that we hear!
Open newspapers, online news channels, TV channels or social media sites, one trend that has been rising across the globe is increasing brutality!
The developed countries have witnessed brutality in terms of excessive gun shootings which has killed many people.. Countries like India are seeing more of brutal rape cases, husband killing own wife, mothers kiling children, children killing parents for property!! I was shocked to have read a newspaper report which talked about an army man who killed his wife in India, and cut her into 300 pieces and stored them in steel containers! Gosh wats wrong with humanity??
Some of them say, this kind of brutal behaviors among human beings always existed, and its now in this period due to excessive media reporting we are getting to know that such things exists. But I have a different view to this increasing brutality among men! And I look to the Bible again, because this book has always answered my questions, ofcourse I dont have all questions answered but I believe the Holy Spirit will help me at the right time!
For now, read with me – II Timothy 3:1-5 : But mark this: There will be terrible times in the last days. People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good, treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God!!
Well, isn’t the text leading us to another clue, that we are living in the last days like in the days of Noah, sin is growing everywhere!
As Christians and believers of the truth that set us free aren’t we supposed to pray for the perishing world?
If God would look down and see would he see Noah’s ???
Its therefore important that we live right lives enabled by the Holy Spirit. And remember that first our lives should be a testimony, so that being saved we can save our family, bring up children in the right way and then God will use us to be a testimony to others!!
